what i ate [working from home] wednesday

wow, it’s been a while since i’ve had to compose a post from the actual wordpress dashboard and not in windows live writer…it’s weird! i was a lazy girl this morning and didn’t blog before i left for work, so i’m writing this from the lab!

it’s ok, though, because i know exactly what i’m going to blog about today – it’s what i ate wednesday, after all! 🙂

yesterday’s meals were a little special since i worked from home. you actually get pretty(er) pictures instead of iphone photos shot of food sitting on my desk.

breakfast was hot oats!

i didn’t change anything up with this at all. my regular old hot oats with:

  • 20g rolled oats
  • 10g oat bran
  • 6g ground flax (~1 tbsp)
  • 6g chia seeds (~1 tbsp)
  • 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 medium banana

all heated and whisked together on the stove and topped with:

  • 1c very berry cherry blend
  • 15g almond butter (~2 tbsp)
  • 10g homemade rhubarb and strawberry jam (~1 tbsp)

i also had coffee

and kombucha!

wonderful breakfast. 🙂


lunch was leftovers from the night before – green enchilada pie!

it was just as delicious the next day!


dinner was very late last night (at least for me!). brad ended up working super late and didn’t get home until 8:15! good thing i’m an awesome wife and had dinner all ready for him – i even grilled all by myself (huge milestone). 

yesterday heather posted a delicious-looking chili recipe and mentioned that she served it with a side of roasted potatoes, which made me crave them like none other.

so i decided that roasted potatoes were going to be our side dish last night! i did pretty much the same thing as her: tossed in e.v.o.o. and rosemary, thyme, garlic gold sea salt nuggets, and pepper and then roasted at 425* for ~45 minutes.

but what were they on the side of?

salad beasts topped with turkey burgers!

not just any turkey burgers, though… goat cheese turkey burgers!

i added ~10 oz. 93/7 ground turkey, ~2tbsp ranch dressing mix, ~1/4c breadcrumbs, ~1tbsp worchestershire sauce, and ~1/3c goat cheese crumbles. all mixed together and formed into patties!

we were both so hungry by the time we ate and this was a delicious, filling, veggie-riffic dinner! i couldn’t even finish my potatoes so i get them again for lunch today! 🙂


and there you have it – another day of my meals! i wasn’t really snacky yesterday, so that really is pretty much what i ate all day minus about 5 baby pickles around 3pm.


on the schedule for today: work! i’m finishing up a presentation that i have to give at a conference in a couple weeks. my adviser is going to be travelling from friday until after the presentation, so i need to get his input  on the presentation today.


have you watched any new fall tv shows yet?

the biggest loser started last night! i honestly didn’t watch the whole thing – not sure how i feel about anna kournikova being a trainer now. i did see the ending, though.

and glee is waiting for me on my dvr (the husband refuses to watch it with me, so i just save it for the couple hours i’m home in the afternoons before he gets done with work. 🙂

    Goat cheese turkey burgers?! I actually don’t like turkey burgers, but adding goat cheese might change my mind 🙂 I’m always proud of myself when I use the grill on my own and don’t burn anything. I’m pretty sure my boyfriend is recording every new fall show! We watched Glee last night. I’ve always been a huge fan, but the storyline is getting so old to me and I swear they sing less and less every season. I’m giving it two more episodes before it goes in the trash.

    Yum! I love hot oats for breakfast especially when its cold out!
    Yay, congrats on grilling by yourself! Thats still something I have to try 😀

  6. Yay for grilling, definitely on my list of things to learn! You should watch the show “the new girl”…its new for fall and is hilarious!

  7. I love grilled veggies!

    Would you believe I am not into a single Fall tv show. I watch tv don’t get me wrong but nothing consistently. I’m a freak!

    those roasted potatoes look so delicious! Billy is the TV watcher in this house – I just sit on the couch next to him with my laptop. 🙂

  9. wow those roasted potatoes look delicious! I always love mine with rosemary.
    oats!! I’ve never tried banana whipped up in mine, I usually just do plain oats topped with fruit with nut butter to dip on the side.
